New Delhi: In a goof-up which is likely to leave the DDCA mandarins embarrassed, the state cricket body on Tuesday couldn`t spell Brian Lara`s first name correctly.

Instead of Brian, it was written as Brain on the hoarding at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. The West Indian legend was here to conduct a cricket clinic.

Lara spent nearly one and half hour with budding talents at the DDCA training facility.

"I enjoyed the ninety minutes with them. Batting was a bit rusty," he said.

"I am really impressed with the young talents. But I think the batting facilities should be a bit more enterprising, that will help the young Indian batsmen," Lara said.
